Switch to McGill's m-tickets, GoSmart or contactless

Switch to GoSmart, m-tickets or contactless, it's quicker and saves you looking for change!

McGill's m-ticket app and GoSmart card is the faster and more convenient way to travel! We no longer sell weekly student tickets, 4 week and 10 week tickets on bus, these are only available via McGill's m-tickets or GoSmart card; meaning purchasing your GoZone ticket before you travel using your debit/credit or Apple Pay.

We've launched our new app too - including real timebus information, m-tickets and more, find out everything you need to know below!

Single, return, all-day and weekly tickets will not be affected for the foreseeable future - however we would recommend switching for convenience and a speedier journey! We now have contactless available on our services for these types of ticket too! Simply purchase with your contactless card, mobile or even watch!
